I dont have pics as my phone was acting up. The S65 that you saw has multi spoke wheels. I was at a party in a friends house and the owner had brought it. By the time we were done we were well done to take pics or remember we had to check out the car. So no pics.

It's the standard tinted class, at sunny surrounding it reflects golden shade & it's great to see on black body colour!

Is that black S65? I was told that demo S65 (the one on my profile photo) is being bought by a customer who wanted the car immediately & couldn't wait for 3months which MB-India required to import a fresh one!

That car was sold long back to a Builders son who is very impatient. We have four S 65's in Bombay. White, Black, golden and this Blue. There are 3 S 63's also. White and two Blacks. This demo car of theirs was hardly run and it does come with all warrenties, so there is no problem and also you get it cheaper than the regular ones.

OMG, thats quite an exciting number of S65s in Mumbai! Great! . I love to see all those pics!

Ya buddy, you are right, even though he is impatient, he has done a intelligent deal, buying a sparingly run S65 with a handsome discount!

Some of the cars are posted here and some come out late at night so hardly anyone on the streets to click them. The Grey S65 is the Company car and comes up and down. This was here with the Black one and Auto Hanger was trying to sell it to me. I shall try and get the Pics for both the whites and the Blue one.

Yes in his impatience he has got himself a bargain. The guy has other exotics too in his stable and three more desireables are comming in this december. This is the same case as VJM's Maybach, where he bought the demo car for a cheaper cost. You get the car and plus end up saveing money.

Carneal Red S500 with panoramic roof, 18" 9-spoke wheels, etc. spotted from Sundaram Motors, Bangalore. I guess this was the first W221 S-class to hit Bangalore. I remember someone posting the photo of the same here.

The facelifted S class would also have the S 500 engine variant available as a CKD.

Yesterday saw one Limo S500 outside my office in Gurgaon silver in color. It looks really huuuuge.

This is definitely not the new generation S-class meaning the facelifted ones.
The facelifted one come with new tail lights and a new daytime running light.

What I meant to say was that I prefer the stock wheels on the S350. My bad. And the new "facelifted" S-class has clearly lost it. Too glitzy, trying too hard to copy the Audi "LED everywhere" mantra. Infact all manufacturers are doing it.
